I also was diagnosed with triple negative bc 2 1/2 years ago. I do not recommend anything to do with much sugar. The problem is we rely too much on sugar and it is very acidic. Cancer loves an acid environment so my belief is you are not helping yourself by rewarding oneself with sugar treats. Also there are other ways of dealing with nausea other than more drugs-acupunture can help with pain and nausea. I am one of the few who did not indulge with chemo but I did have radiation with a naturopathic protocol and I had zero side effects from that. Do yourself good by surrounding yourself with good healthy food-instead of shakes try juicing veggies with some fruit-it is healthier and better for you. Please try to get rid of the sugar treats and remember what Hipprocrates once said "Let food be thy medicine"-he did not mean shakes or hard candy either.
